I had the pleasure of visiting the new Anthousa fragrance store in Seattle this week which is a beautiful combination of Parisian chic and New York sophistication. It wafts with the most incredible scents ranging from sweet white gardenia to crisp cucumber and green grass. My Mom is an interior designer and turned my onto these eco-friendly room fragrances years ago and now I’m completely obsessed. They make every room effortlessly chic and are one of those things that help life become a little more beautiful…naturally I had to share them as one the three things I think will make your weekend fit and fab.
- Eat Good Chocolate: I love food, especially desserts, and I think enjoying your favorite foods in moderation is the best way to go about having a healthy diet. That said, I have a little indulgence hint…I eat really good dark chocolate (70% cocoa) which is high in anti-oxidents and because the flavor is so intense one or two pieces completely satisfies my chocolate cravings. Right now I’m loving Theo chocolates which are made in Seattle and come in unique flavors like Ginger Rose, Hazelnut Crunch and my favorite Bread and Chocolate.
- Bring Home a Beautiful Fragrance: Anthousa makes beautiful room diffusers and exquisite candles that last forever and give a pure clean non overpowering scent to any room. The current special edition scent is Parisian White Tea but there are also aromatherapy scents and plenty others to choose from. The same way wearing a signature perfume makes you feel fabulous… Anthousa fragrances will do the same for your home. They are perfect next to the bath for your very own at home spa night plus they make great housewarming and Mother’s Day gifts.
- Start A Healthy Streak: Recently the internet was abuzz with the concept of starting a running streak. The principle is this… you decide to run a particular distance (say half a mile, a mile or three miles) everyday and you see how long you can keep the streak ging. I love this idea and I think since not everyone is a runner that it’s fun to open the “streak idea” up to any healthy choice. So pick one simple healthy thing…for example: eating a piece of fruit everyday, drinking water, walking for 15 minutes, starting a food journal or going to bed on time, anything you would like to make a healthy streak. Here’s the thing…it takes about 21 days to start a habit so if you keep the streak going for at least 21 days well guess what? Your healthy streak is now a healthy habit!
Happy Friday and I wish you a very Fit Fab Weekend!
